You will never have to compromise on reception or quality. The i3 offers the highest signal strength available along with Intellian’s patented iQ² Technology. The slightly larger reflector and radome size over the i2 improve range and allow for a more ruggedized design, making the i3 ideal for vessels traveling at higher speeds or further into offshore waters.
With innovative technologies, the i3 always maintains the highest signal strength available and ensures crystal-clear TV reception.
Intellian’s super-efficient 37cm (15 inch) diameter antenna provides constant, seamless reception while the vessel is moored, at anchor, motoring along the coast or cruising offshore. The i3 2-axis antenna features a built-in GPS which can accelerate the satellite signal acquisition time while boats with conventional antennas are left watching “SEARCHING FOR SATELLITE” on their screen.
DISH (US) and Bell TV (Canada) users will benefit from using an Intellian MIM (Multi-Satellite Interface Module) . The Intellian MIM is required to facilitate automatic switching between satellites for these services, allowing boaters to enjoy changing channels with automatic satellite switching just like a home system. See the Intellian MIM product guide for further details.
Fully Automated System
Automatic Satellite Search and Identification Function
2-axis Stabilization provides high speed tracking
High Performance Antenna
37 cm (15in) diameter parabolic antenna for receiving the Ku-band satellite signals
Circular or linear polarization depending on region and LNB selected
Built-in HD module for Ku-band HD TV reception
Intellian’s Patented Quick&Quiet℠ Technology (iQ²)
iQ² Technology allows you to tune in quickly, maintain a solid signal lock, and enjoy your favorite TV programming in quiet comfort
The Wide Range Search (WRS) Algorithm delivers the fastest signal acquisition available anywhere
Dynamic Beam Tilting (DBT) technology uses intelligent, real-time beam analysis to ensure superior signal quality while eliminating intrusive background noise experienced with conventional antennas
Antenna Control Unit
Intuitive controls with a digital information display on the ACU
Wireless automated updates and diagnostics via Aptus PC and Aptus Mobile
DC Out Port for easy power supply to the Intellian MIM or the Shaw Decoder Module
Multiple Receiver Capability
Multiple receivers and TVs can be connected using a Multi-Switch or the Intellian MIM (Multi-Satellite Interface Module)
Using the MIM a master receiver can be selected to control the target satellite
In North America, when using Dish or Bell TV, a MIM is required, enabling automatic satellite switching from your remote control just like you do at home
Built-in GPS and NMEA 0183 Interface
The i3 includes a built-in GPS inside the Antenna Unit for faster signal acquisition
The ship’s GPS can also be connected through the NMEA 0183 port on the rear panel of the ACU
43cm (16.9 inch) antenna radome diameter
Antenna weighs less than 9 kg (19.8 pounds)
